Throughout the year, Bolton Refuge House participates in and hosts a variety of support groups, community events, awareness campaigns, and family activities. Check out what events are coming up soon:
April 2021 was our first year lighting up the footbridge in Phoenix Park in Teal! Individuals and businesses were able to sponsor a night of River Lights - one night where the bridge was lit in teal, in solidarity with victims and survivors of sexual assault. Thanks to the generosity of our community, the bridge was teal every night in April! Donations also went towards printing and distributing materials on sexual assault and our services.
Thank you to all those who helped us make this happen - our work would not be possible without the support of our community!
April 2021: Sexual Assault Awareness Month
Color FOr A CAuse
Color for a Cause started in 2015 with a BRH Intern with a dream. She wanted the community to have a way to show their support of survivors of sexual assault, and so Color for a Cause was born!
Every year during April (Sexual Assault Awareness Month), supporters can go to many area salons during the month of April and have a teal hair extension put in to show their support and to raise awareness in our community. Check in with us next year for the details on going teal!

June 2021 - LGBTQ+ Pride
Thank you to all who joined us at Eau Claire's Pride in the Park on Saturday, June 12th. It was a joy speaking with all of our LGBTQ+ neighbors, and we especially enjoyed all the contributions to our "Self Care Board!"
